BRS Labs, a provider of artificial behavioral analytics software, was chosen in the Technology Demonstrator 2 (TD2) technology challenge, managed by the Innovative Science and Technology in Counter Terrorism (INSTINCT) and Thales, under the direction of the UK Government Office for Security and Counter Terrorism. The challenge focuses on technologies used to enhance aviation across multiple stages from exterior and interior intrusion detection, baggage screening and boarding of aircraft, to enhancing the passenger experience and increasing airport revenues.
INSTINCT is a UK Home Office run initiative, which aims to identify innovative technologies, solutions or ideas in the field of counter-terrorism. TD2 focuses specifically on ideas that could enhance aviation security.
BRS has invented and developed video surveillance behavioral analytics platform, whereby neural network technology for the first time is being applied to video surveillance systems through an artificial intelligence framework. Specifically designed to autonomously serve as the eyes and brain for critical security environments, the platform is able to attach to existing video surveillance infrastructure and watch, learn and identify unusual behavioral patterns in real time. This video surveillance technology has been deployed globally across critical infrastructure facilities, intelligence agency applications, urban areas, seaports, financial institutions and others.
The software detects anomalous behavior, while focusing on maintaining efficiency of operations. The solution alerts upon unusual activity directly into the command and control operations center as well as delivery to individual response officers located throughout the airport , all without interfering with the efficiency of movement or convenience of passengers”, said John Frazzini, President of BRS Labs.
Artificial neural networks simulate the functions and processes of biological neural networks. With this microclassification feature, the platform classifies objects without any preprogrammed definitions or specifications, replicating the neural processes of a human.
Universally compatible with legacy camera and software systems, the solution supports a fully documented SDK with turnkey integration, a time and cost saving complement to its ease of installation.
